crb the battle continues. shoacontinues.the show may be oe conversation continues. we'll see you next time. >> good evening everyone. this is al jazeera america. i'm john siegenthaler in new york. mers in america. the first documented case of the deadly virus strikes the hearts land. what you need to know about its riervel. fire storm lepts down dozen -- helicopters down dozens of people dead. a warning. gerry adams questioned in the unsolved murder of a woman of ten. we'll talk to the plan whose
11:01pm
work led to that arrest. plus secrets of a forger, making a fortune from fake mastemasterpieces and we'll shou how he does it. we begin tonight with a very unwelcome first in america. the very first documented case of a deadly virus spreading in the immediate mirrored east. it's known as mers and health officials say it's diagnosed in health officials in indiana. there are a lot of fear and questions about mers. we'll get you the answer he you need from a doctor, but first, mysterious information about an illness. jake ward. >> middle east respiratory descroax or mers is a virus that
11:02pm
calls, the reason that this first american case is of such concern is that there's no specific treatment, vaccine or cure for mers. all the hospital can really do is provide treatments that alleviate the symptoms in some way. they can't actually turn the illness around. here's the thing. it's a very dangerous illness. of the 262 cases reported by the whrworld health organization, an unvaccinated person, a ann anthr are acute respiratory syndrome or sars, all they can do for this person is isolate them, give them oxygen and hope other people didn't come in contact with them.
11:03pm
they came in the middle east, to indiana, an uncovered cough or sneeze or significant time in close proximity could have pred it. spread it. developing a vaccine could help, but mers until now has been a pretty rare affliction. it just hasn't come up that much. but now that it has actually hit our shores it may be time to commit that time and money to investigating this disease once an for all. >> that's jake ward. celleen gounder, i asked her to describe the symptoms. >> fever cough and shortness of breath. >> how dangerous is this? >> this sounds like this is a very scary disease, 30% of the patients who contract the virus do die. but how much transmission is
11:04pm
there and where is the disease located? we knew we would see craises in the united states, it's only a matter of time, there are a lot of people who travel to saudi arabia both for hajj for work and other reasons. this is not a highly infectious disease, you it is not like the flu or the cold. >> how do you treat it? >> there are actually no treatments, supportive measures oxygen that sort of thing. >> it originates from saudi arabia. how have health officials handled it in saud iraqi? >> that's what's been disappointing. the health minister was fired over this. he's threatened health care workers with dismissal if they discussed it. be health care workers were even told not to wear masks so as not
11:05pm
to alarm patients with plers. >> how quickly last this advisor spread in the last couple of years? >> this first case came out in 2012. we've seen in other parts of the world, u.k, tunisia, ant now united states, that is what would you expect traveling on a e-mail plane with a health care work ir. unfortunately there is not a great screening mechanism for that kind of thing. essentially what you need to ask ask look out for people who come down with symptom. when you see somebody ask them, did you travel to saudi arabia or the middle east in the last 14 days orto so. >> being how long do the symptoms take to show up? >> we're thinking about freafn days. >> is there possible other cases in the u.s? >> highly unlikely. the centers for disease control are doing a contact observation
11:06pm
to make sure there are no other cases. but it's not a highly transmissible disease. not likely to lead to other cases. >> doctor thank you. >> thank you. >> a child's worst nightmare, child goes to bed healthy and wakes up with a mental disease. today the situation turned more dangerous and violent. fighting is in odessa, the third largest city in ukraine. hoda hami drvemid isid reports. >> blue and yellow flag of ukraine. the intensity of the smoke sent some people jumping for their lives out of windows. dozens of others died suffocating. the building had been the headquarters of pro-russian
11:07pm
protesters for over a month. earlier in the day were unable to restrain either side. the clashes in odessa underline the challenges that face the interim government. happened the same day the corey ukrainians, odessa in the south of the country ukrainian paratroopers continued their operation slorches throughout thslovyansk throughoutthe night. the minister of defense confirmed two of its helicopters were shut down. proof of moscow's involvement on the ground. this plan is said to be a ukrainian pilot who survived from one of the helicopters. he's apparently being cared for
11:08pm
by produce separatists in this this -- pro-russian separatists in this town. >> he was abandoned by his own people. >> ukrainian forces managed to retake this television antenna. it was seized by moscow supporters in a bid to control the forces. >> the clashes that engulfed streets of odessa hundreds of kilometers away from the pro-russian heart land in the east are a sign that these ever-increasing divisions put the entire country at risk and the question for many here is how close is a russian direct military intervention now that many of its supporters have lost their lives? hoda hamid al jazeera donetske. top of the agenda for president obama and german
11:09pm
chancellor angela merkel. more from libby casey in washington. >> president obama and chancellor merkel stood side by side in the rose garden and spoke with one voice threatening broader sanctions against russia if it continues to foment violence in ukraine. >> if in fact we see the disruptions and the destabilizations continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanction he. >> translator: i agree with the american president that they are not an end in itself, but combined with an offer that we want diplomatic solutions it is a very necessary second component to show that we're serious, serious about our principles. >> what form sanctions would take is still in question. president obama has pressed european leaders to press
11:10pm
sectors. >> energy flows from russia to europe, those continued even in the midst of the cold war. at the height of the cold war. so the idea that you are going to turn off the tap on all the russian oil or natural gas exports i think is unrealistic. >> reporter: president obama said sectorsto could hit lines of trade. the two being leaders had their first meetings in almost two years ago. germany's leaders are still angry over revelation he of nsa credit eavesdropping on merkel's phone call. >> translator: there are differences of opinion on what sort of balance the strike between the intensity of surveillance, trying to protect the citizens against threats and on the other hand, protecting
11:11pm
the individual privacy and individual freedom. >> reporter: president obama said he was pained to see the degree to which the snowden disclosures had strained both his personal relationship with merkel and strong u.s. alliance with germany and he tried to assure germans that regular citizens are not subject to surveillance. >> ordering our intelligence communities to take privacy of non-u.s. citizens into account in everything you do. thank you very much everybody. >> but the two parted ways, and the you know, doesn't have such an arrangement with any of its closest partners. libby casey, al jazeera washington. >> wiped out an entire village north of kabul in the hills of baarakshon.
11:12pm
more than 2,000 people lived in the village. rescuers spent the day bringing food and comfort to the survivors. heavy equipment secondary are roads can't support. kevin corriveau is here with the weather. >> over the last couple of days we've seen a lot of storms going through, a lot of rain. it is springtime and unfortunately northern afghanistan has one of the most diverse climates. in the summertime temperatures are in very dry, into the 90s sometimes triple digit. in the winters we get quite a bit of snow across this region. mountainous conditions here, this is where the highest peaks are in afghanistan. between 20 and 24,000 feet high. in the winter time we see quite a bit of snow in this area and then what happens as we get into spring you get rain and the melting from the snow pack. what's happened is we have
11:13pm
flooding as well. last week we saw about 180 people killed because of severe flooding that went on in this particular area. i want to show you a little bit closer in on what it's actually like when you get down towards the low level geography in this area. it's very arid so when it does rain there's really no vegetation to hold any of this moisture in. and when you see when it does rain, the rain fawls falls withn these ravines. these valleys are really the only transportation in and out of afghanistan. like secondary roads mainly dirt roads in this area. when you look at this geography there is past indication of many landslides that have occurred in many parts of afghanistan. it is not just the rain that causes the landslide and mudslides but earthquakes as well. >> cerch thank you. jobs -- kevin thank you.
11:14pm
job rate, lowest rate in the past couple of years of. the economy added 288,000, the lowest since 2012. unemployment down to 6.3%. the reason for the drop varied for people leaving the workforce completely to the end of the winter slow down. now new jobs are promising but the reality is much different for many americans out of work. nearly 5 million people are facing long term unemployment. abe gorelic is one of them. abe has an ivy league education from university of pennsylvania, decades of marketing experience working for likes of fidelity, epsilon and axiom. he was forced to work three part time jobs as a cab driver retail salesman and a grocery clerk.
11:15pm
abe, thank you for coming on. this is not easy to talk about but thanks for sharing your story. >> thank you very much for having me on the story john. >> how tough has it bin since you lost your job? >> it's been extremely challenging. meeting expenses many juggling bills, trying to figure out how to day focused in a difficult time. >> you have an ivy league education. what was it like when you applied for a job as a grocery store clerk? >> you know, i -- it got to the point, for me, where i was willing to do whatever was necessary to do whatever i could to support my family. and so i -- there was a job fair at whole foods. and i went in and was talking to the folks, willing to do customer service or other opportunities that presentthemselvepresented thems.
11:16pm
>> did they say you were over qualified? >> one or two instances, they said that. they asked why i wanted this job, i told them these were difficult times and one has to do what one needs to do. and i thought some of my experiences were applicable. >> you have a wife and kids. i understand you have a temporary six-month job right now. what's it like being concerned to have to try to take care of your family? >> it's -- it's a -- it educates a great deal of -- it generates a great deal of stress. generally the thing i've gotten very good at and i'd suggest others to try think through is the ability to compartmentalize the moment and try whenever you can, it's very difficult, but to push certai certains things asio the moment to be able to do
11:17pm
whatever can you the best you can. >> so is it men and women of a certain age who are really having the toughest time you they -- you think? >> i think there are difficulties for people 45 and older perhaps, who are meeting coming up against roadblocks in corporate america. at times -- >> but you've got the experience? >> i know i have the experience. but i think that there are pluses and minuses i guess viewed by corporate america with regard to that. i have the experience, so i could be more efficient and effective. more strategic in my approach to business challenges. yet they believe in perhaps they have to pay me more. perhaps i can't be trained specifically to the demands of their company or whatever it might be. >> you lost your job more than a year ago. of course there are a number of people who lost their jobs back in 2008 and have had difficulty
11:18pm
as well. so what do you -- what other than what you've described, what else can people do? >> well, i think be networking, trying to leverage relationships that you have. not being too proud to ask for the name of a friend, or for someone to keep you in mind. it's not about applying for jobs so much that are posted. but it's more about the contacts that you can make, and trying to leverage that. and being willing to take less than what you might have been earning, or in a role that is not necessarily as senior as you may have been doing previously. >> i just want to wish you the best of luck in your job search and i hope soon you find what you want. >> thank you so much. thank you very much, john.
11:19pm
>> coming up the case against gerry adams. the man who played a key and controversial role in the sinn fein leader's arrest. coming up, going to sleep normal and wake up with a mental illness, next.
11:20pm
11:21pm
>> now to a story we've been watching closely this week. the arrest of sinn fein leader gerry adams. in a moment we'll talk with a man many consider responsible for adams arrest but first tim friend has the latest. >> a dark side within the northern ireland police is creating instability. growing anger over the way police are dealing with the arrests of sinn fein leader gerry adams in connection with a notice onotorious murder duringe scaled troubles. >> there is clear, what summoned that force i mean very senior people this that force have decided or have described to us as the dark side.
11:22pm
and these are people who continue to work through a negative and 18th peace process agenda and are -- and antipeace process agenda and. >> mr. adams denies any link to the killing of mother of ten jean mcconville, wrongly accused of being a police informer. >> he is under arrest and now his detention last been extended under the terrorism act. belfast international image is on the up. but old tensions are not far from the surface here. sinn fein say some police are against the peace process and they have been told this by reformers inside the force. other political parties here have been physically attacked, won't disrupt the process. >> i think at one point northern
11:23pm
ireland has moved a huge distance. underyour honor cun current of - undercurrent of be par paramilitaryism, still there and still rife. >> mr. adams arrest as sinn fein, is politically motivated an time to damage the local elections. he insist he will be exonerated. tim friend, al jazeera, northern ireland. co-founder of the boston college belfast projects, the oral history of the troubles, ed maloney. welcome. >> hello, yes. >> do you think gerry adams gave
11:24pm
the are direction to kill this woman? >> i wasn't present when the ira credit leadership decided to do this to her. but the people who i have talked to, incidentally, it's very important that you should understand and realize this story predates the boston college archive by at least a decade or so. i wrote about this story in 2000. 2002, in a book called the secret history of the ira, when i read that jean mcconville had been an deducted by a special unit of the ira under the control of gerry dooms. aadams. it's only in recent years that they have shown any interest no.
11:25pm
solving the mcconville murder. something to do with the fact that during the interim, the fact that there are elements of the police who dislike gerry adams and saw this as an opportunity to go for him seize they had chance to do him damage so -- >> let me just go back to my question though just for a second. i understand all that. but do you actually believe that he gave the order? >> well i -- you know all i can say is that the people i talked to are very adamant. and as i say i talked to them in 2002. long before boston college archive -- >> right. >> -- and i talked to them and they were adamant and gave convince accounts of what had happened. and on the basis of the fact that their stories in other ways held together, their life stories about their experience in the ir a hung together i found them very credible.
11:26pm
>> why did you get involved in this program to begin with? >> very simply because i thought it was a very important thing to do. we had just had the good friday agreement, 1998. it was clear, by 2001, that the conflict in ireland was over. there were some loose ends that had to be tidied up. but we were clearly on the way to the ira decommission its weapons to the creation of a power-share government and the thing was over. and i think there's a responsibility on journalists and also on historians, to try to record as best you can the experiences of those who took part in a conflict such as the one that we had. now normally, the stories of conflicts are written by the leaders and also by the winners, they're rarely written and told by those who took part in them. when we set out to record those stories and we set out to record
11:27pm
the stories of republicans, ira people, of the police and also of the british army, we were successful in getting three of those strands underway. and the reason why we did it when we did do it is because the northern ireland conflict had lasted for 30 years. and people who had been let's say 20 or 30 when the conflict started were in their 50s or 60 fs. whe60s. people who were 40 or 50 were near death. the opportunity came along in an offer from boston college to provide us a cast iron legally safe so we were told way of collecting these interviews and storing them in a safe place in boston well out of reach of the british. now that was an assurance we were given very solidly. we had told that boston college had run this proposal past their
11:28pm
lawyers and we were receive to go ahead based on the contracts. >> let me just interrupt and ask you this. how do you think this arrest of gerry adams affect the peace process? >> it heralds the end of the peace process to some extent. he has been humiliated, in the last few days, and i doubt he can recover. the here you have the man who was i suppose more responsible than any other single individual for persuading maneuvering cajoling tricking duping whatever word or verb you wish to use the ira into laying down its weapons, turning in its weapons and calling a cease fire, recognizing the state it had been set up to destroy, his reward is what's happened in the last four days or so. and the lesson to that to irish
11:29pm
republicans many of whom are skeptical or do you believe dous strategy, saying doing dealings with the british will betray you, the only thing they understand is at the end of a barrel of a gun. the reflection of what the psna has done in the last week or so, has done in a very i think permanent way. >> it's good to have you on the program. thank you very much. coming up drone battle, opportunity wary eye of the faa. we'll take a closer look. plus, stand your ground or baiting a burglar. putting the controversial law on
11:30pm
trial. r

11:33pm
east. virus of mers has been spreading in be saudi arabia, treating itreating infected pats is knowledge death deadly if one-third of patients. last month the economy added 288,000 new jobs, the biggest monthly jump in two year in eigs since 2002. the reason people leaving the workforce and the end of an unusual winter slow down. john. >> thankrichelle. lisa bernard reports a warning, some of what you are
11:34pm
about to see may be disturbing. >> at first glance, even a trained be psychologist felt these children were suffering from a mental illness. tessa gallo, was a confident teenager, when her mother said overnight, she became psychotic. being treated for a bipolar disorder. put on a long list of psychotropic drugs. >> none of these had effect. >> a physical illness attacked a part of her brain that triggers
11:35pm
violent newly defined condition called pans, pediatric acute onset neuropsychiatric syndrome. opened the first pans clink in the country 18 months ago. dr. why body attacks itself. she and pediatric psychiatrist dr. kentuck kik i chang. >> i have taken care of hundreds of kids. something is going on here. >> triggered by strep infections. dr. donald gilbert at cincinnati
11:36pm
children's hospital is troubled by this aggressive treatment. >> i think having a general clinic set up to treat kids who seem to have pans with an aggressive expensive designer drug that has a black box warning is a dangerous clinical practice and it's not apparent. >> the treatment are apparently worked with tessa gallo. pans is so influence, the american religion pediatric association has no treatment protocol. teresa gallo says it's worth the wait. >> we are all in one home and we're trying to enjoy each day as it comes. >> and for now, their biggest concern is getting to to school on time about.
11:37pm
list ah bernard, al jazeera, san jose, california. >> now to the controversial stand your ground law. a recent case intensifying debate is centered on this 17-year-old german exchange student in montana. a homeowner in town claiming to have been burgled in the past set a trap by leaving his garage door open one evening. when the student entered, the homeowner shot him in the head. joining us to talk about this is attorney arriva martin. welcome ariva. >> hi john. >> how does this differ from other stand your ground case he? >> this happened at home. the blockbuster cases ever trayvon martin happened in the street, he set a trap and lured
11:38pm
the student into his garage and then shot into this garage in the dark even though he knew this kid was in there. >> but is setting a trap still in the scope of the stand your ground law or the crass ill doctrine? >> the real issue was reasonable reasonableness. was this kid in his garage to commit some forcible felony or bodily harm. >> is did it matter his home was burglarized wfer? >> that's the troubling case. we knew the homeowner told his hairdresser he was waiting for this blanking kid. it appears this homeowner was taking the law into his own hands, doing what he thought needed to be done, we expect he will argue that because of these prior break ins he was afraid
11:39pm
that the intruder was going to cause him some bodily harm. but the prosecutors say no, this was premeditated murder. >> we have a sense of how juries look at these cases and how they make decision he when it comes to stand your ground? >> i think this is going to be troubling, a 17-year-old unarmed kid. apparently he did break into the garage. was its reasonable? did the homeowner call the police, could he have taken some other action? was he in fear of his life? to shoot into the garage? i think the jury would have to grapple with the question of reasonableness. >> is there any reason the believe this stand your ground movement is growing or getting
11:40pm
smaller? >> an opportunity for individuals to take the law into their own hands, there is a lot of people who feel that people are using this as an opportunity to protect themselves from individuals that mean them harm. i think we're going ostart to see some contraction of the stand your ground laws. because no one wants anyone setting a trap and killing your honor armed teenagers. >> ariva martin. thank you. >> thank you john. >> educators are using another tool to spot kits from dropping out. they mine data on attendance behavior and course grades and then they pull together a rescue team. in miami they're supporting teens in trouble in middle school. natasha guinane reports. >> mat godby said he spent the majority of his life as a organic member and drug dealer.
11:41pm
he was planning on dropping out so he could make money. >> surviving, trying to be the man out o of the house after myd left. everything started when my dad left. i really needed him. >> he said his plans changed thanks to a program called diplomas now. >> if you don't wake up you're going ofail my class. >> -- going to fail my class. >> the theory is that method borrowed from data pipelining, each week a team of teachers and others meet in what they call the war room. to identify students like godby who are in danger of dropping out. they focus on attendance grades and behavior then intervention begins. each student is assigned an academic coach a social worker and a tutor. >> they're not dumb. it's just that they don't have the support they need to feel like they're even capable of
11:42pm
accomplishing what they are capable of doing. >> diplomas now began as a pilot program in a philadelphia school six years ago. now it's operating in 40 middle and high schools across the country. >> miami carol city high school went graduation rate from 40% to 87%. >> it's a monumental difference, being able to capture them right away and giving them that extra assistance that they need? >> what word can we use as osynonym? >> diplomas now is, offered as a $30 million grant of u.s. department of education and private donors. godby's grades have drastically improved. he attributes the turn around to the teamworking with him. showing interest in him, something he doesn't get at
11:43pm
home. >> look at the middle of the picture and i'm going forward. >> godby says he's doarmd boost boost -- determined to boost the statistics of his school by graduating. natasha guinane. al jazeera. a drone hit two buildings in new york city, fined $2200. drones are not just being used for entertainment purposes, but news gathering and washington is watching. yk. >> tornado's aftermath were from drones. launched by storm chaser, they offered nearly intean 19 instans
11:44pm
disasters. consider the arkansas individual video. the faa is using it to document are tornadoes. for faa the answer is simple. the agency says there are no shades of gray in faa regulation. anyone who wants to fly an aircraft, manned or your honor manned, conflicting rulings have raised questions over just how much oversight the government has. still as drones become more common, when news breaks, chance he are you'll be watching it through eyes of drones.
11:45pm
roxannroxanna sabiri, al jazeer. series finale, for borderland, we'll see it's more treacherous for women. >> father pressliano takes the women to a pharmacy. blfng. >> the fact that women are putting shots because they know they're going to get raped, we have to understand the sacrifices women are going omake in order to have a better life.
11:46pm
>> it's sick to know that as a woman, not only do you have to worry about feeling sick, breaking an ankle, you also have to worry about being raped. this world is an evil world. >> final episode of borderland airs on al jazeera america this sunday at 9:00 p.m. eastern time, 6:00 p.m. pacific. joirnls al jazeera apples mohamed fahmy, will receive a world press freedom award. he has written a letter from his

11:52pm
>> it's being called the holy grail for stamp collectors. a 158-year-old british stamp is going to augmentation next month by sothebys. by estimate it's worth $20 million. said to be the last of its kind. a confessed forger comes clean. his name is ken parini, takes
11:53pm
pride making masterpieces his own. he earns a fortune with his fake art. i asked him did he feel he was doing something wrong? >> i felt it was pitting my skills against the knowledge of experts. >> how much have you made? >> it's hard for me to put on a figure over the years. >> millions? >> i would say so. >> you will not be prosecuted, you've taken the straight and narrow road now. you just don't want to tell us? >> well, it would be hard for me to figure that out. because my career spanned over 30 years. and it would certainly be in the millions. but i really couldn't be accurate on any kind of a figure. >> so how many of your fake
11:54pm
paintings are out there that people actually think are real? >> well, i have at least 1200 photographs of paintings that i created throughout the years. but there were many more that i just didn't have the time to make a record of. so i could say with confidence, at least 1200. >> the red flowers by martin heed, you sold yours for 700 -- so the real one's on the left, the fake one's on the right. you sold that for $700,000, is that right? >> yes. that went for over $700,000 at sotheby's. >> and it's now worth? 2.5 million? >> well i don't think it -- well i would say a similar painting of that series, by heed, today would go for probably about a couple million. i sold mine in 1995, but he last
11:55pm
